Courageous Kids Foundation is a non-profit and non-political Community Orphan Care, where orphans and vulnerable children are cared for and housed. Courageous Kids Foundation was founded by Courageous Musasa in October 2013 in Malawi-Blantyre T/A Kapeni, Chilobwe village. This orphan care was founded because many Orphans and Vulnerable Children were realized all over the place. Though there are free educations, the children sit idle alongside roads and village paths suffering from hunger, lack of school scholastic, material care, clothing, proper bedding's and shelter. The children of the victims of HIV/AIDS parents who are still alive are also helpless on the increase due to poverty. Therefore the organization is working hard to change the situation of suffering by supporting the children through accommodating, feeding and educating them so as to earn the bright future.
Currently Courageous Kids Foundation have 70 Orphans and Vulnerable Children who stays at the orphanage and it also gives supplier to another 130 Children ,giving us a total of 200 Children. More than 30 Orphans and Vulnerable Children are Secondary, College and University students. Every year we do fundraising in order to find money for school requirements, food, clothes, shoes and other basic needs.
As many orphans and vulnerable children as there are in the world there are as many reasons for them being orphans and vulnerable. Every single child has their own unique story. The reasons for their connection to being an orphan or vulnerable will vary from country to country, city to city, and from person to person. These factors will also vary over time, such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, displacement due to natural disasters and conflicts or family breakdown all lead to increases in the numbers of orphans and vulnerable children in a given area. Courageous Kids Foundation provides shelter for orphans and most Vulnerable Children through our orphanage home. Currently we have more than 70 children who stays at our orphanage home in Chilobwe, Blantyre. Among 70+ children who stays at our orphan care, some were taken off from the streets of Blantyre, Malawi.
Courageous Kids Foundation works to create sustainable environments where children who are most at risk in the community can thrive and create a bright future by supports orphan and vulnerable children to stay in school and succeed by covering their school fees, providing them with school bags, uniforms and materials. The children have access to healthy after school meals so they remain energized and focused on their studies at our orphanage. Some of children from our orphan care who were previously enrolled are now studying in university and College's.
Beyond the education and shelter benefits, Courageous Kids Foundation provides food support through feeding program which was implemented in 2019 after launching an orphan care. This feeding program become invaluable in enabling children to continue their education without struggling to find food each day. It protects children from being exposed to child labor. It also provides stability in both the home and the school environment as the child and caregivers do not have to keep changing locations, looking for that elusive job to provide for their basic needs.
